Nilfisk ALTO P150.1-10 B X-tra 150bar Pressure Washer 2.9kW 230V
The first machine arrived damaged but was quickly replaced by Screwfix. The damage was caused by the weakness in the initial packing. The machine has done its job efficiently and having tried to do the same job with a lesser machine, I was thrilled to find this one fit for purpose. The patio cleaning accessory was worth having but I had to purchase it via the manufacturer as Screwfix said in their catalogue that the patio accessory supplied by them did not fit this model. This was a little disappointing as Screwfix has a better delivery time.

Great cleaning performance from this Nilfisk unit. Bought to replace an existing Nilfisk washer (120 bar). My existing click and clean attachments work really well with the new one, especially the patio plus attachment which on first use on my driveway performed really well.
Very handy detergent tank too - useful when washing the cars as you can switch from detergent to clean water quickly, with a minimum of fuss.
A previous reviewer mentioned MCB tripping in their garage. Same thing happened to me, no big deal - just uprate it!

Pressure Washer satisfaction
We bought this washer to start making savings on bringing out one of the many drain cleaning companies to clear our drains. Unfortunately we had to purchase the associated accessory from another supplier. The first time we used it we had complete satisfaction. Clearly time will tell how long the equipment performs satisfactorily but we plan on looking after it.

Good once fuse issue solved.
I purchased this pressure washer last November but was initially disappointed as every time I used it using the electricity supply in my garage, it kept tripping the mini circuit breaker (mcb) in my consumer unit. However, I have now upgraded the mcb for the garage sockets to a C type which means that the circuit breaker is less sensitive to the initial high current required to kick start the induction motor. Used it today plugged-in in the garage and has been fine. I would recommend anyone who is considering buying this washer to check the rating of the socket where they are most likley to use the machine and change the mcb if necessary.
